Sleeping Beauty

The film has been described as an "Erotic Drama". This part comes out in the trailer but I think you need to also add "sci-fi thriller" as the trailer hints towards that. It does, in a loose sort of way, have a feel of the 80s film, Brainstorm.

To watch this video, you need the latest Flash-Player and active javascript in your browser.

“You will go to sleep: you will wake up. It will be as if those hours never existed.”

Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy is a young university student who takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty. In the Sleeping Beauty Chamber old men seek an erotic experience that requires Lucy’s absolute submission.

This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep.

Haunting and provocative, Julia Leigh’s powerful vision is one of the most startling debut features of recent years. Featuring a fearless performance from Emily Browning, Sleeping Beauty is set to be one of the year’s most anticipated and celebrated releases.
